The specialty of an Indian karigar is his possession of the skill of handcraft which are passed down through generations of karigars. The craft is a blend of history, cultures, perfection and experience.
These kaarigars work with precious metals such as gold and also the non precious high quality metals like brass and copper but what matters the most is the skill of kaarigars and not the metal. These master craftsmen work tirelessly with the same amount of effort, skill and dedication when working with the non precious high quality metals like brass and copper to give it the same look of perfection as the work done with the precious metals. Hence, the name - real look alike jewelry.
